 Re: Legendary Pictures Godzilla
I just went over to youtube and there's an animated banner ad for Godzilla. I freeze-framed a shot of his foot stomping down. Is it me or does Godzilla's foot look freakishly small?

It looks stubby almost like an elephant's foot

 Re: Legendary Pictures Godzilla
I had seen that animated banner, but didn't really look all that closely at it. It does seem like a strange design (aspect-wise) for the foot--especially in light of how much Godzilla is than in earlier films. Maybe it's a bit of an optical illusion? Doesn't seem likely-with everything being done via CGI and all--but I'm hoping it won't look ridiculous in "reality".

I've been trying to avoid watching any spoiler-type clips and trailers, but just saw the "Let them fight" clip on the last page. Looks pretty danged cool!

 Re: Legendary Pictures Godzilla
I found this image and it does seem to confirm Godzilla has stubby "elephant feet".

Image

The image is from a from a Japanese (?) website that needed translating:

Once translated, the person who posted the picture lamented that the new Godzilla has "pig feet" lol

 Re: Legendary Pictures Godzilla
went and saw it last night.

a bunch of the shows were sold out.

the imax theater was jammed full of people.

the parking lot was packed and everyone was going nuts clapping during the flick.

it was a lot of fun. yes, could have been better but it was still really good.

i highly recommend any godzilla fan go see it at the theater. it looks really good on the big screen and you will regret it if you only watch it on TV. it's really designed to be seen in a theater. the sound design was perfect.

see it in imax if you can.

the crowd loved it. i do hope they make another one because i hear they might model it after Destroy All Monsters which is one of my favorites.

 Re: Legendary Pictures Godzilla
It's kind of funny to think that, once a film is released, these threads go from being "Movie News" to more like "Movie reviews" as everyone sees the flicks and reports in on them. I'm always eager to hear from fellow CDF fans--since I know we all grew up on the same kinds of movies and have similar interests in film. Thanks for the information astroal. I wasn't planning on seeing it in imax, but it certainly seems like THE movie to see there!

Col

i highly recommend seeing it in Imax.

i will be the first to say it could have been better but honestly it was a solidly good film. the fx were top notch and the sound was tremendous.

it packs a huge punch in imax that will be lost on tv or normal theaters.

I saw it tonight before I had to head to work (the theater is 10 minutes from my job) I was blown away. It's a very solid film.

 Re: Legendary Pictures Godzilla
How cool is it that just about every Drive-In around is running this?

Saw it in 3D yesterday at a regular theater and was frankly pretty bored by it. Two hours long, and no monsers really show up until an
hour in. When they do, they're almost always obscured by some object in the foreground, or cut away from quickly. We see a monster
approaching the Las Vegas strip, then cut to a shot of the aftermath of its rampage as it walks away in the distance. I'd advise NOT
seeing it in 3D, as the slight dimming of the image that occurs will make the mostly-at-night monster battles even harder to see. Kudos to
the filmmakers for not adopting the contemporary confuse-o-rama style in shooting this, but MAN, do they go out of their way to not show
the monsters all that much. Godzilla is only really in this for what, like 10 minutes out of 120?

I think this is a well-made film, but when I go do a Godzilla flick, I go for the big guy, not the human story, which in this isn't terribly interesting.
I know you can't have the runtime made up solely of giant nonverbal monsters duking it out...that would be boring, too. I'd just like a little more
Godzilla in a film that bears his name. At times it felt like I was watching webisodes spun off from the main feature, following inconsequential
characters while the meat of the story/action is taking place off-screen.

All that said, I'm all over a sequel that gets it more right than this one did.

 Re: Legendary Pictures Godzilla
I did think that there were some nice moments here and there. When we first see Godzilla properly
and he lets out that roar, I got goosebumps, and when he dispatches the final baddie the theater
burst into cheers and applause, and that's saying something for a 3pm matinee in this small NH
town.

Some nice effects and cinematography at times, and decent acting there and there, but overall
I was kinda bored.

I've been reading reviews from moviegoers around the 'Net and this seems to be the common complaint among most of them. Too much of the human characters and not enough Godzilla. This has downgraded my enthusiasm for seeing the movie quite a bit. I do not want to spend an hour and a half drumming my fingers waiting for the boring parts to go by, for Godzilla to appear. Maybe I'll skip this one and wait for the sequel.

Plus, I read he only uses his atomic breath once or twice the entire time.
